The Sun Gate

The gateway was rebuilt in the 14C in the Mudéjar style. Allowing entry through the second encircling wall, it opened on two limited horseshoe arches. Visible on the top is a strange sculpture showing two girls carrying a severed head on a tray. The head supposedly belongd to the alguazil, a leader in the town, who was guilty of raping the girls.
